Test for Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus Using ELISA Kits


Vector-Best has three CE-marked ELISA test kits available for the diagnosis of Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) virus: 

  • VectoCrimea-CHF-IgG - Enzyme immunoassay kit for the detection of IgG against Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus
  • VectoCrimea-CHF-IgM - Enzyme immunoassay kit for the detection of IgM against Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus.
  • VectoCrimea-CHF-antigen - Enzyme immunoassay kit for the detection of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus antigen

CCHF is considered to be an emerging virus in Western Europe. It is transmitted by ticks (Ixodes Family), and its reservoirs include domesticated and wild animals such as cattle and deer. The first human case of infection happened in 2016, which resulted in death. 

Two laboratory-confirmed cases of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) were reported by the regional public health authorities in Castile-León, Spain, in April 2021. On 10 June 2021, regional public health authorities of Castile-León reported a second laboratory-confirmed case of CCHF in
2021. The case is a woman with epidemiological information suggesting exposure to tick bites in León.
